When Hugh Hefner tweeted last night that Playboy's entire back catalog was en route to the iPad—even the naughty bits!—it got the internet tittering about the potential of a Playboy app. But my friends, we've been snookered.
Turns out Hef wasn't talking about an app at all. What is coming to the iPad is Playboy's custom website. That is to say, a subscription service that you access on your browser, with pages formatted to be iPad-optimized. You'll still be able to access the entire history of the magazine in a much more convenient environment than that 250GB hard drive, although there's no word yet on how much you'll pay for the privilege.
